Nelly Furtado was flying high at Canada's 2007 Juno Awards this weekend where she hosted and performed at the big awards show Sunday, and won in every category for which she was nominated.

A total of seven awards were presented during the two-hour CTV telecast from the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The majority of the awards — similar to the Grammys in the United States — were handed out during a gala dinner on Saturday night.

The awards show opened with Furtado, dressed in a black tutu adorned with feathers, floating down from the ceiling to the stage in a nod to her 2001 breakthrough hit "I'm Like a Bird."

She made several costume changes during the evening and had a chance to show her sillier side during a few skits.

Furtado won album of the year for "Loose", song of the year for "Promiscuous" and the JUNO fan choice award, in addition to the artist of the year and pop album of the year she won the night before.

Billy Talent took home group of the year and rock album of the year for "Billy Talent II," Tomi Swick won new artist of the year, and Jacksoul won R&B/soul recording of the year for "mySOUL."

Dixie Chicks were awarded international album of the year for "Taking The Long Road" and Diana Krall won jazz vocal album of the year for "From This Moment On".

In addition to Furtado, performers included Billy Talent, Three Days Grace, Patrick Watson, Alexisonfire, City and Colour, K-OS, DJ Champion, Gregory Charles and The Tragically Hip, who were joined on stage by Hall of Fame recipient, Bob Rock.
